Hackers send anti-Semitic fliers to UWM campus printers

PRINCETON, N.J. — Several colleges across the country are investigating after a rash of anti-Semitic fliers began printing from their network-connected printers or fax machines.

The fliers began appearing Thursday at schools including New Jersey's Princeton University, Rhode Island's Brown University, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

The director of the New England office of the Anti-Defamation League says a white power group appears to have hacked into school printers. Office director Robert Trestan says sending the fliers remotely appears to be a new tactic for the group.

The fliers are addressed to "white men." They disparage Jewish people and include links to a neo-Nazi website.

The chancellor of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst calls the fliers cowardly.
